Genshin Impact Cooking guide: recipe locations, ingredients and character specialty dishes

You can get up to a lot of different things in Genshin Impact, but an absolutely major component is Cooking. Cooking requires you to simply head up to a stove - which are found all over in cities and at campfires - and doing so brings up a menu that lets you cook delicious meals using a wide range of ingredients.

Cooking is absolutely vital in Genshin Impact, as eating the fare that you prepare will give you powerful buffs that will in turn allow you take on more of the game's content. Each dish has a different speciality - some will buff you for dealing more damage, some will heal or revive you, and others will make things like climbing easier by gifting you more stamina. Meals are powerful, especially if you run a team without a healer.

In this guide, we list off every Genshin Impact recipe and what ingredients you'll need to create them - including the secret recipes certain characters can cook. If you want more Genshin Impact help, we highly suggest giving our guide on the Wishes & Gacha Banners and our Anemoculus locations list a read.

How to Cook in Genshin Impact

As mentioned, to cook in Genshin Impact you simply need to head up to a stove anywhere in the world - the first one of these you encounter will be in your starter city, but they're scattered right across the world in towns but also at camp sites. Naturally, you'll need ingredients - these are picked up as loot, purchased in shops, and some ingredients have to be processed before use.

When you first start cooking a particular dish, you'll have to cook it manually by playing a little mini-game. All you have to do is stop the indicator when it's in the right place - it's all pretty obvious. The indicator has a lighter area that's more of a yellow tone and a darker area that's closer to orange - if you hit the orange that's 'perfect' and will garner the maximum effect for your chosen dish. As well as this, your 'proficiency' cooking that dish will be increased.

Once you hit maximum proficiency with a recipe, you'll be able to automatically cook that without playing the mini-game.

In addition to the standard recipes, it's worth noting that several characters in Genshin Impact have exclusive 'specialty' dishes they can cook. These are accessed by cooking an existing recipe with a specific character - and if you're lucky, it'll trigger an enhanced version of that dish only that character can cook. For instance, Xiangling can cook the Black-Back Perch Stew and instead get the Wanmin Restaurant's Boiled Fish recipe - which is signifncantly more powerful. All of these are listed below, nested under their 'parent' recipes.
